It is readily apparent that not only are valuations at extreme levels, but bullish sentiment as well. As far as complacency is concerned we need look no further than the CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX), which at last glance was at 11.72 and it was as low as 10.58 only a couple of weeks ago, which was a multi-year low.
Is the combination of overvaluation, complacency, and overconfidence a ticking time bomb? Many analysts contend that it is, and their concerns are well-founded. We bring all this up because the bears are becoming more vehement with each passing day, and there is no doubt that they will eventually get it right because bear markets inevitably follow bull markets. In the meantime, it is a bull market; and, as we have repeated again and again, the best course of action is to give the bull market every benefit of the doubt.
